Two weeks prior to this event, Citi FM has organized the first of what would become regular half-year programme. The September 2005 edition was held on the last Friday on that month at the Exhibition Assemblies of God Church.
It was after prayers for the nation and other issues that Pastor Stephen Wengam, lead pastor, asked that we make a final prayer to God for one specific thing that we wanted God to do for us. I asked the lord to reveal His will comcerning who he wanted me to marry. Exactly two weeks later after this half-night prayer programme, on Saturday, October 15, 2005, I met Justine,” he said.
Bernard shared with the mourners how every plan of Justine, was towards extending helping hand to others and to the service of God.
